Academic Scholarships allow Pacific Hills to extend the benefits of a quality Christian education to students with strong academic potential. Academic Scholarships are offered as follows:

  • Years 7 to 10 (4 years)
  • Years 11 to 12 (2 years)

Scholarships, of up to 60%, are available at both of these entry points. They cover the cost of all mandatory courses and tuition, camps and excursions. School uniforms, textbooks, stationery and optional activities including mission trips are the responsibility of the family of all Academic Scholarship recipients.

Scholarship candidates are required to undertake an Academic Aptitude Assessment through the Australian Council of Educational Research (ACER). These occur mid way through Term 1 of the year preceding the year of enrolment. All candidates are notified of the Scholarship results midway through Term 2.
